“CATCHING IT EARLY CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE TO BEATING BOWEL CANCER.” Amira Georgy, Senior Food Editor
Bowel Cancer Australia’s “Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late” campaign launches on February 1. Bowel cancer affects men and women, young and old, and is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer. However, when detected early, 90% of cases can be treated successfully and it is also one of the most preventable cancers. Bowel Cancer Australia is reminding us that timing can be everything. See beatbowelcancer.org for screening and other information (screening options include an easy test to do at home and send away). There is also strong evidence that eating fibre can help prevent bowel cancer. National guidelines recommend two serves of fruit and five of vegetables every day, as well as enjoying a diet high in whole grains. Try our recipes, right, for tasty ways to eat more fibre.
